I don't think that we necessarily would rather view from our computers. The thing is, I personally still like watching my programs on the big screen as opposed to my laptop. But with the advent of programs like Netflix and Hulu, plus free (illegal) streaming sites, i think the unfortunate truth is that people put following their programs as they air on TV is a low priority for the majority of TV viewers. We're seeing the same thing now with every night of TV that we have seen for years on Friday nights. People aren't taking time out to watch their shows, because they know it is so easy to catch up on them later.

I think the most interesting advent of the "Netflix" era is the advent of binge viewing. I personally watched all 13 episodes of House Of Cards over a 2 day period. I wonder how cable networks will respond to that. I almost wonder if the 3 episode block of community last spring was as a result of the rise in binge viewing. If it was that was a massive failure for NBC as the rating dropped for each consecutive episode and the 3rd episode was the lowest rated in the show's history.
